Grout cleaning Tampa: Removing sealer haze

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Sealer haze: Natural stone and grout surfaces can only hold a certain amount of sealer.

If excess sealer is left on the surface and it dries it could cause a smooth, silky white haze.

Sealer haze on the surface of tile and stone surfaces will wear off during normal foot traffic. Sealer haze on grout lines can be cleaned using a towel soaked with fresh sealer. This will dissolve the excess and can be wiped away.

In extreme conditions using a high ph tile and grout cleaner and a rotary scrubber can speed up the process of removal.

For professional stone, tile, and grout cleaning in Tampa bay area including Wesley Chapel, Lutz, Brandon, Valrico, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Palm Harbor and Trinity area call 813-435-1331

Does Your Wood Floor Need to be Recoated or Refinished?

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

A complete refinishing may be necessary

National Cleaning Specialist of Tampa Bay recommends if areas of your floor have been worn down to the bare wood, if the floor has deep stains or color differences in the wood, if there’s chipping or peeling, or if your floor cannot be re coated due to factors discussed above, you’ll have to do a complete refinish.

If these signs are not readily apparent,you can use this simple test to determine what care your floors need:

Take this simple test

Find a high traffic area where the finish is likely to be the most worn, and pour a tablespoon of water onto the floor.

If the water beads up and you can wipe it without a trace, the finish is still working and you don’t need to do anything just yet.

If the water slowly soaks into the wood floor, creating a moderately darkish spot, the floor is partially worn. You may be able to get away with a recoating. Consult your wood flooring contractor for the best course of action.

If the water immediately disappears into the wood leaving an obvious dark spot, it’s time to refinish the floor.

For routine cleaning of wood floors by sweeping and vacuuming along with use of Squeaky Cleaner will maintain the floor’s original appearance.
